Boxer Allan Green Enjoys Boxing and Comics
Allan Green has an upcoming fight that’ll be broadcast on Showtime, June 19 at 10pm ET/PT from the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. In an interview with Fightnews.com, the boxer revealed in his free time he’s an avid reader including boxing history and comic books.
“One of my favorite hobbies is collecting comic books and studying boxing history,” said Green. “I must have about 500 comic books in my library and I eat, sleep and drink boxing. I’m a student of boxing history. I enjoy studying films of old time fighters such as Jack Johnson, Jack Dempsey, Sam Langford, Jersey Joe Walcott, Joe Louis, Willie Pep, Henry Armstrong and “Sugar” Ray Robinson, just to name a few.”
And who is Green’s favorite comic book hero and favorite boxer.
“My favorite comic book hero is Thor and “Sugar” Ray Robinson for boxing,” says Green. If you want to learn anything about how to box, just look at some of Robinson tapes. He was the complete package.”
